For this purpose Forty five (N=45) Soccer players from Annamalai University were selected as subjects during the academic year 2016-2017.  They were randomly divided into three groups of fifteen each, group-I underwent Percussions Manipulation with yoga, group-II underwent Pressure Manipulation with yoga and group -II acted as Control. The massage manipulation technique was given for twelve weeks duration. The dependent variables selected for this study was hip flexibility and it was measured through sit and reach test. The data obtained from the experimental groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post-hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. The level of confidence was fixed at .05 level for all the cases. Flexibility showed significant difference among the groups, further the results suggested that Percussions Manipulation with yoga and Pressure Manipulation with yoga were increase hip flexibility.
